Maryland. The old plates were a little boring, but clean and classic. These new War of 1812 plates just look frumpy, chunky, and dumpy.

Haha-I do miss those too:





I've always liked the plates from California, Rhode Island and Colorado.

Agreed. I liked Maryland's old plates since it was pretty simple with the nice flag they have.

Simple plates are great. Oregon is a favorite of mine. The red/white/blue TX plates looked tacky to me, I like the new white ones much more.

I like that Idaho includes county information in the serial #.

Idk but everyone should switch to the flat designs and no numbers that stick out... they look a million times better, easier to read and don't fade...

Georgia definitely needs to redo their tags.
This is ugly: new tag

Wish they'd go back to this one: classic tag


MD's previous tag was very nice. I like NY, MI, PA, IL and SC's tags.

There is nothing wrong with basic. The new Texas plates, a simple black on white with no cute designs, works for me. Atleast they change them up every so often, unlike CA, OR, WA, an even ID.

I agree. Too many changes too quickly.

I think they're a little nicer than the old designs.

The old Ohio plates are my all-time least favorite. It's a cheesy, clip-art nightmare.




While the new Ohio plates are my current favorite. Good job, Ohio.

I agree, the new Ohio plate is far superior to the old one. But I really wish they'd ditch the "Birthplace of Aviation" slogan. That title belongs to North Carolina (which uses "First in Flight," which also works). Ohio's state quarter got it right: "Birthplace of Aviation Pioneers."
